HOW TO TRAVEL MYANMAR – A Backpacking Documentary – Episode 3: YANGON to BAGAN


Come with us as we travel through Myanmar (aka Burma) visiting Hpa An, Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan, and Hsipaw.

In this episode, we hitchhike from Yangon to Mandalay eventually getting to Bagan. Bagan is known for the abundant amount of ancient pagodas, temples, and monasteries. Most of this episode takes place in Bagan where we spend a few days exploring these ancient structures.

This is the first episode on my channel, but it’s the 3rd episode of a 4-part series. You can find Ep 1 and 2 are on The Budgeteers channel:

    their roads are so confusing. how the hell is the driver's seat on the right side of the car yet its passing a left-seated road?

    why do they speak so bad in English? didn't the british empire colonized them before. Those Englishmen never thought them English? Why?

    OMG! I am very jealous of you guys because I am from Myanmar but I have never been to there. You guys are lucky. I am happy to see you guys are happy and enjoy in the trip. Can you tell me that how much budget have you spend in Began? Can you give me the information about Hotel? Thank you Steve.

    Steve, i know its not your fault. But im so tired when you always say "its so cheap, just 2 Dollars etc". My wife is from Myanmar and she earns around 35 Dollars per months. A health insurance isn't possible. Its such a privilege, living in western countries. But 2 Dollar ist quiet a lot of for the citizen over there. Please think about a bit …
